Awhile ago, the hubby and I were getting ready to go see a movie with some friends. I knew I really wanted to wear the polka dot top, but I had no idea what to wear with it. I challenged myself to wear the polka dot pants with it, and as a last thought, grabbed the blazer too, since movie theaters are often cold. End result? LOVE IT! I felt extremely comfortable in this outfit, both literally and figuratively, and when that happens, you know it's a great outfit!
When my husband and I are outside taking pictures, the boys are often outside riding their bikes or playing now that we've got a nice, big driveway. My youngest decided to get in on some of the action this time, however, this isn't the first time he's jumped in to some pictures!
My words are lacking lately and I know my posts are sporadic, but I've been trying to enjoy the summer with my kiddos. Recently we started potty training my youngest.. and it's been interesting, to say the least. So please forgive me if my posts are more pictures than words the next few weeks (or maybe months!)!
I did get my hair colored the day I wore this outfit, and there sure is something about getting your hair colored that makes a lady feel good! :)
So about six weeks ago, I had a wedding to attend. It was the weekend right after school was done so I hadn't really thought about what I was going to wear. I knew I had recently ordered a dress from thredUP that I thought I would wear. The dress was a beautiful mint color and it had a lace overlay, and it had think straps which was a plus! I got it the day before the wedding... and when I went to try it on I felt like it was just too short for me. I braved it anyways and wore the dress. I didn't get any pictures of me wearing it the day of though, shame on me! I did wear it with a jean jacket and lots of pretty jewelry. Who knows, maybe if I ever feel like playing dress up, I'll get a picture! :)
You guys, I recently went through my closet and my boys' closet to get rid of some clothes. Some I sent in to thredUP but the rest I've just been stacking in my office trying to sell it on the virtual garage sale page for my town. Problem is, none of it is selling. I wasn't ready to have a garage sale when it was time for the city wide garage sales... So now I'm not sure what to do with it. For those of you that have instagram shops, are they worth it? Would a "shop my closet" page within the blog be a better idea? Or should I just have an old fashioned garage sale later on this summer?
Do you ever know that you have to do something, say homework, and suddenly you find your self doing things that are waymoreimportant than the thing that is actually the important one?? Because I do that all of the time.. like right now for example. I know I should be reading for my science class but suddenly, cutting coupons and blogging became more important than my classwork. And so is finding things on thredUP because I know I have money to spend from sending in two bags... Glad I'm not the only one.. :)
